Question Which headstuds?

I may have the oppotunity to have the dealer do aftermarket headstuds and would like to know what you guys think is the best way to go for headstuds? ARP or Elite Diesel h11's? I want something that will never have a problem again no matter what I throw at them! Thanks

ARP is the automotive standard. You wont jack them up. I am about to do the same process, just need to find a willing Tech to do it for me under warranty. You will see that Elite's stuff is OVER priced. All of their stuff is WAY over priced. *Somebody correct me if I am wrong here*

They do seem to be a little over oriced on things but since they are a local business in my area I like to support businesses like that so I am willing to pay in that case. But I am also only willing to pay if getting the H11's is worth it over the ARP's!

ARP is the ONLY fastener that I have used (after properly educated by half-assery) when I have assembled small blocks for my own purposes (mainly abuse). The fasteners haven't failed on me. Although the Powerstroke scene and modding them is new to me, ARP is not. Some of the more seasoned diesel guys should chime in soon, but I personally do not feel that you will find fault in ARP's products or pricing.

The ARP's are more than sufficient. H-11's are way overkill and not worth the extra money.

I would only go with H11's if you ever plan on having your heads off again. H11's can be re-used over and over. ARP's are supposed to be used once only IIRC... If you're only going to do it once, ARP's all the way.

The H11s are tool steel and can be re-torqued many times. The ARPs are a torque to yield fastener and as such should only be re-torqued once. Although I've heard of folks re-torquing them a couple of times with no issue. ARP's should be more than adequate.
